“Excellent - Booked thru Vacation Candy”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Booked this location through Vacation Candy. Very happy with VC's customer service and follow through. The Marriott Surf Watch is a great facility. Clean, well kept. Lots of family activities hosted by Marriott. First time in Hilton Head, I would return to this location.

In general Hilton Head is a bit old and needs some updating. It's like an eighties time warp. That being said, Surfwatch is the most modern feeling resort on the island that I know of, especially having the pool right at the beach. Yes it is pricey if you rent through Marriott, but I personally think its worth it. If we return(which we always do), it will be to Surfwatch

We've stayed at this resort numerous times over the last few years - both during the summer months and also at Christmas. I can't say enough wonderful things about how the resort is presented and how friendly the staff is. The pool closest to the ocean offers a Tiki style bar/food area that is great - you can charge to your room, use credit cards or cash. The food is good and drinks cold. The pool area chairs have overhead umbrellas attached to each chair which is wonderful for covering up from the sun. The shuttle service (golf carts) they provide to get to the beach/pool is quick and super easy to use. The pool closest to the condos is large and has ample seating. We used the grills to cookout and they were well equipped with gas, lighting and starters. The rooms are well designed with all the amenities you would need. The kitchens are well equipped and clean. Each unit has it's own washer & dryer which is wonderful. Need more shelving in certain areas but overall a very nice place to stay!

We stayed at SurfWatch for 8 nights and were quite impressed with the numerous children's activities and attentive service.See rented a 3-bedroom villa in building 53, overlooking the lagoon and offering quite a peaceful setting. We would definitely select this building again. The walk to the beach was just fine, and the optional transportation to the beach was very prompt. We will return. Very friendly and attentive staff. (Perhaps their small bar near the main pool could extend their hours and open daily. Many guests seemed disappointed with the weekend unavailability. Also, the Marketplace seemed quite limited compared to other Marriott Markets.)

This is the place to go if you want a beautiful facility with a lot of fun activities for the whole family. We stayed in a 3 bedroom unit. The units have washer/dryer and you are responsible for cleaning your towels etc unless you want to pay a daily housekeeping fee. The grounds are impeccable. There is a small playground area, fire pits where they roast smores, ping pong, shuffleboard, corn hole, putting green, indoor pool, fitness area, cinema. They have at least 10 activities each day. My husband and I did yoga on the beach one morning. We woke up early and took a walk on the beach with the baby in the stroller. The beach is huge during low tide. We saw starfish, horseshoe crab, and a baby shark. You can rent beach chairs or rent a cabana near the ocean pool for $65 a day. We tended to stay near the other bigger pool since it was less crowded and had more shade. They have a golf cart system that brings you back and forth to the beach since it is somewhat of a walk. They have a bar at both pools. They had a drink of the day for $4 which we had every day. They have a guy on a segway that zooms around and gives our freezey pops to the kids/adults. There is a small toddler pool and a water fountain that the kids can run through. You can also rent bikes for the day ($10) or week ($25). We rented a bike and put our 11 month old in the back. It was so much fun.

Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. I really couldn't come up with one complaint. If you stay here, you will not be disappointed.

Stayed at Surfwatch the last 3 days of May using Marriott Destination points. Highlights include great service, beach bar with good sandwiches and appetizers? bike rentals on site, and endless Golf Cart shuttles from units to the beach- we did not use since walk was rather short from our wing. Will definetly stay here again!

Stayed here for a week with our son and his teenage children. Had a first floor 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit which we requested in the 5300 building. The rooms were recently refurbished but the appliances are a little old and due for replacement shortly. The resort has many activities for guests of all ages, but our grandkids really appreciated the beach. There are 3 pools. There is a snack bar at the beach front, which is really not up to par with the rest of the facility. The concierge was very helpful in arranging off site activities such as fishing and golf. We were not pestered with time share sales. We are Marriott time share owners, but arranged this stay through Interval International.
